Despite a largely negative review from Rolling Stone magazine at the time of its release, this determination was later retracted with the album being ranked number 86 in the magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time in 2003.
Time told on that one, don't you think?
Beatles For Sale is their underrated album in my opinion. The only problem with the album is there to many covers. The songs lyrics are darker "I'm A Loser". Under the influence of Bob Dylan there is already a strong folk rock influence that pre-date the Byrds of 1965. The 12 string jangly guitar sound also were influential also. There is also a strong country influence on songs like "I Don't Want to Spoil The Party".
let it be naked was much better. especailly evident with the long and winding road. i can't stand phil spectors production work.

MORE BEATLES DLC PLEASE!!!!
You guys make it seem as though under-rated just means "not considered very good". Probably becuase it isn't very good, and neither is Let It Be. All better songs can be found on Past Masters and Let It Be... Naked gives you the album almost as the Beatles intended it.
So is Let It Be under-rated? No, it's fine where it is.
